Excerpt: I recently got this camera (the silver version) and I really like it. I have a huge DSLR that I love, but sometimes you just want a little camera to throw in your purse or pocket and not lug anything. This camera is very small and thin and has a huge viewfinder. It's very easy to use. Only a few settings are confusing like the face or smile recognition. I love the latter. It can actually tell when someone smiles and snaps the shutter as soon as the smile happens.
Excerpt: not real complicated, easy to learn, nice zoom feature, love the screen - a little short for on-board memory and then sony cops a baditude and makes you purchase their proprietary extras, like memory...
Excerpt: I bought this camera about a little over a year ago, around December of 2009. I had upgraded my 4.1 megapixel to 12.1 megapixel, wow what a big gap haha. Definitely awesome, I love it so much, it is still working very well now, no problems whatsoever, I keep it very nice, no scratches, dents, etc. It takes very clear photos, awesome lighting, very adjustable, and the pictures come out really nice when I take it to Rite Aid or CVS to print.
Summary: I am loving this camera. It's easy to use, compact and the picture quality is really good. If you want something with excellent quality, try a SRL, which I switch back to my SRL occationally, but this is just a great size.
Excerpt: to me this is one of the best point and shoots for 12 megapixels out there . Nothing fantastic but everything very good. The colors are very nice, The cameras ability to sometimes take shots close to a dslr amazes. Problems: the zoom and the shot to shot time could be a tad faster. I especially wish the zoom was a bit faster.
Summary: I needed a second still image camera for business since we share a single one in the office, which often results in delays. I was so happy with the Sony Cybershot DSCW80 that I bought about two or three years ago, that it was a no-brainer to upgrade to this newer, higher megapixel version. This is my fourth Sony digital camera, and I'm loving it. I can't stress enough how wonderful the anti-blur technology on the camera is.
Summary: We most recently purchased this camera after wanting to upgrade our pixels from our old Sony. Takes very nice photos, good video clips if needed but less then stellar when it comes to zoom clarity. At a graduation ceremony from the second row I tried to zoom halfway to get a better shot and found the end result both on the display and in the actual print out to be very blurry and that wasn't even in full zoom.
Summary: I got this camera as a gift and I think that this camera is cheap(price), but the quality is pretty good. This camera has a pretty decent picture quality, and video quality. It has a large lcd screen, but the bad part is that it covers up the area where a viewfinder usually is. there are plenty of feature, some that I don't even need, but is fun to play with. There are not many things that are bad, only the missing viewfinder and that it only uses pro duo memory cards.
Summary: I bought this camera when I started having problems with my old sony camera. I was disappointed that Sony does not make cameras with view finders anymore. But I thought I would try it anyways with a trip in Africa. With no view finder it was hard to take pictures out side and not sure what you were taking half the time. A view finder is a must. Some confussion on when I wanted to have the flash on with back light like with a sunset and figure in front.
